Unleash the Big Cat: The New Jaguar XE
Posted by Ruby J on February 15, 2015
What is packed in the cage?
The British brand came up with a differently designed sports sedan with the recent Paris Motor Show uncaging the Jaguar XE. It is built with the efficiently designed lightweight technology using aluminium-intensive monocoque. The Jaguar XE is so far the lightest and smallest yet sturdiest sedan in the roster. Here’s why:
- It has the integral rear link axle
- Double wishbone front suspension
- Ingenium diesel engine
The added edge
The rigid powerful exterior is an indication to Jaguar’s proficiency in employing aluminium structure that contributes to cost efficient fuel emission and consumption. Power-driven with V6 petrol engine, the Jaguar XE can run from 0-60mph in less than 5 seconds. It is supercharged with 3.0L similar to the F-Type variant. There are also the 8speed AT and 6speed MT as well as the 2.0 Direct Injection Turbo Diesel Engine available.
How to distinguish a Jaguar
You can instantaneously spot a Jaguar from afar. The streamlined contour and the sylphlike proportions make it a distinct cut above the rest. From the outside you will notice a low profile that is sleek and almost resembles a coupé no matter which angle you look. The J-Blade running lights are a signature conventionally coming from the Jaguar E-types. There is a traversing horizontal line from the rear, which makes it uniquely Jaguar.
What are the enhancements made on the Jaguar XE?
Among the obvious feature is the low drag shape of the body. Placing the bumper ducts over the exterior of the front wheel lessens the drag. With the combined lightweight technology underneath the floor panels, the muffler runs back smoothly as a result.
The spacious cabin is one thing that Jaguar can boast of from its conventional standards. Jaguar’s fêted craftsmanship gives you the highest form of materials for the interior. What’s more, the latest Infotainment system with theso-called InControl Touch lets you run your Smartphone apps whether for Android or iOS setups.
Jaguar XEs highly advanced ASPC (All Surface Progress Control) lets you drive extremely snow covered slopes that are typically for off-road tractions. This type of driver assistance is usually available on Land Rovers.
It gives you a 3D view with its stereo camera positioned behind the windscreen at the front to let you see what lies beforehand. This can also function for lane departure warning and autonomous emergency braking system.
The HUD of the Jaguar XE generates vivid colour graphics with its laser projection technology. You can see things clear under extreme sunlight exposure when monitoring navigation and speed of the vehicle.
Jaguar XE fulfils the selection of sedans from Jaguar that sits in between the XJ and the XF variants. It is by far the most aerodynamic, eco-friendly among all Jaguar models with its remarkable low energy consumption. The XE happens to be equipped with an electric power steering, which is another first. Not only that, it gives higher affordability advantage alongside its reduced crash damage repair.
New Car Technology That Will Surprise You

Plug-In Hybrid Cars
The prices of fuel are not the only reason that car manufacturers are looking for new ways to make their cars greener. Governments all over the world are making it easier for them to make cleaner-driving cars, and difficult for those who require more fuel-use.
You have probably heard about electric cars, but you might not realize that plug-hybrids are becoming increasingly available. During 2015, car manufacturers will be producing these alternative versions of many of their gas-guzzling models. While many of their CEOs are not necessarily happy about the change, for various reasons, there are some good reasons that car companies are following this trend. It is becoming more and more difficult for car makers to keep up with the standards for fuel-economy in their vehicles.
Higher Horsepowers With Greater Economy
Technology is advancing at such a huge rate, that car makers have been able to give their cars some incredibly high engine ratings. Smaller engines, which used to be weak and slow, are being packed with enough horsepower to rival anything from the past. This trend will not stop with regular cars either, and it will be found in trucks and SUVs. If you’ve ever wanted to ride around in a 500 horsepower vehicle that could also go offroad, you just might be in luck, assuming that you can afford the asking prices. The biggest point about these new engine technologies, is that they are able to burn less fuel, making them more efficient than cars from decades ago.
